Matt Harvey Stuff presents I Got Bit by A Monkey Once…


Comedy / Stand Up

Five true stories: a monkey; a bus trip; a fire; an arrest and a mugging.

Melbourne comedian and writer Matt Harvey (Live on Bowen, The Leak, Quiz night) is presenting his show, I Got Bit By A Monkey Once at The Tickle Pit, as part of Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

After sell-out shows at the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival, 2019 Fringe World (Perth), and Adelaide Fringe, Matt is bringing this storytelling sensation of personal events to the wider world.

A seasoned story-teller, Matt takes his audience on a journey that includes five fantastic true stories, that come together as an exploration of stupid choices and hard consequences – if you enjoy feeling better about yourself through schadenfreude, then this is the show for you.

Like “Eat, Pray, Love” – if nobody learned anything, and all the “eat” parts happened at McDonald’s, this is a show to be taken aurally.
“… the commentary was so easily strung together with good humour…”Squirrel Comedy

“We left laughing, and also wiser about our place in the world.”The Plus Ones

“… a great example of a comedian managing to make light of particularly troublesome issues, while still carrying the depth of them as to make the viewer aware.”Pop Culture-y

About Matt Harvey:

With a diverse theatrical background, having performed Shakespeare, as a musical pirate, a puppeteer and a range of physical theatre role, it wasn’t until a director told him “You’re really suited to comedy” (the play was not a comedy) that Matt found his fit. Having toured Australia for many years, writing and creating original shows full of whimsical and witty observations, Matt has developed a unique story-telling ability, where he draws from the unreliability of his memory to engage and connect with audiences from all walks of life.
